Jenna Krajeski discusses her story in the in the Virginia Quarterly Review, "What the Kurds Want." For four years, Krajeski was based in Istanbul, where she reported on regional issues with a focus on the Kurdish populations in Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. She is a 2015/2016 Knight-Wallace Fellow at the University of Michigan.
